[Expired] Free Month of CBS All Access with promo Code JANUARY (Works For New, Existing & Previous Users)

Update 1/19/20: Code JANUARY works now.

Update 11/26/19: Apparently promo code THANKS is also working and valid until December 25th. Hat tip to reader KL

The Offer

  • CBS is offering a free month trial with promo code GIVING

The Fine Print

  • Code must be added by December 2nd, 2019
  • Note, you may select the plan of your choice (Commercial Free or Limited Commercials)
  • You will be charged at the full price after your trial period ends however you may cancel at anytime during your trial period

Our Verdict

Seems like every month they have a new code that works for new and existing users, I guess they are just trying to build their member base at the moment. If reactivating, you can click through Swagbucks and get 150 SBs

What’s “CBS All Access”? And do they sell gift cards?

If reactivating, you can click through Swagbucks and get 300 SBs.

My sub ends on 11/28. Will activate again on 12/1. Only use it to watch network shows commercial free, it’s not good for much else IMHO 🙂 Thanks.

do you watch through the cbs site or through amazon? i canceled my cbs sub to switch to amazon bc cbs ads were annoying. i still have the ad version; amazon’s are just more tolerable. just an fyi.

I watch through the CBS app. I wouldn’t pay for it honestly. When there isn’t a free month, I just watch it normally on their site with ads and no subscription. The only downside is that only the most recent stuff is available like the last handful of episodes and it’s free. But since I don’t have any cable or satellite, it works.

Looks like you can’t add this to the recent code for a second free month.

I was currently on a free month trail ending Nov 28th. I clicked cancel subscription so I could sign back up with your code. As I clicked cancel a message popped up with an offer for another free month. No code required. Thanks for heads up DoC.

Be sure to check your billing date. I got the same ‘add one more month for free’ popup and clicked redeem. They kept my same billing date, but the discount changed from the “100% off 1 month” to “50% off 2 months”.

So they are essentially considering my last month as the free month and hoping I didn’t notice. Tricky bastards.

I got the same thing. Then I cancelled anyway to apply the GIVING code. No luck. Anyone know where to apply it for an existing account?

Cancel your subscription. then reactivate and you’ll see the box to apply the coupon. It worked for me.

Burton

I had the same experience. They must essentially be saying get the equivalent of a free month by getting 1/2 off the next two months. I didn’t read the free month popup closely enough to know if that was stated or not. I’ll probably try Dan’s suggestion below later this week.

Where do you go to apply this to an existing account? I don’t see any way to apply promos except when making a new account.

They changed it from before. It used to be that there was a promo field under Your Account but it has been removed. Cancelling could work but not unless your sub is up before this code expires as cancelling will be effective at next billing date.

Once you cancel, there will be a button to resume subscription. Possible that will give the promo box.

Josh

Nah, cancelling didn’t bring back the box. Probably going to just try the old 2-player hack and use my wife’s name and credit card to make a new account.

Cancelled sub set to expire next week. Logged out. Logged back in. Coupon box showed up, applied promo, reactivated sub, now not set to charge until Jan.

Al

Weird thing happened. Cancelled my old acct and created a new one for this promo. Realized I selected commercials version so I upgraded to commercial-free. The billing changed from Jan 3 (1 mo +1 week trial) to Dec 26. So I lost the week trial, w/e not a huge deal. Logged back in an hour later and now my billing date is Jan 26.

So somehow whatever I did caused it to give me 2 months even though my discounts section says “100% off 1 month”. Might have to check back on Dec 25 to make sure they don’t pull a quick one on me

I think a lot of us can’t add this because we still are in a free month from the previous deal, or at least I hope so, as the promo box has disappeared.

i went to the CBS website last night and click on the “THANKS” banner and made a new account. I changed the promo code to “GIVING” but it said the trial ends Dec 2nd. I used “THANKS” instead because that ends Dec 25th, hopefully it helps someone

I think it is dead I tried THANKS and it does not work anymore

Neither THANKS nor GIVING worked for me. I tried signing up from the cbs all access website.

Just in time for the premier of Star Trek: Picard on the 23rd.

I’m holding off adding until the 27th so I can get as much of that as possible. Then I have the Amex offer to do another month (or cancel and have them offer me another free month).

Haven’t been this excited for a TV show in decades. The TNG crew is legendary. Can barely contain myself…

Sure hope people keep their membership after the free month. Without a subscription base CBS might not do another season. C’mon Trekkers!!!

CBS has already renewed Picard for a 10 episode second season (though I share your interest in supporting platforms that produce excellent content)

Wow, that’s fantastic! Keeping myself on a media-blackout about the show (as much as possible) so as not to spoil it. Really glad to hear that. 🖖
